DONATELLA&ME, that’s the title of the thoroughly thought-through social media campaign that was launched for the new e-commerce website of Versace.
For this event, we, but also a few other bloggers had the opportunity to play dress-up in a few Versace creations.
Not the easiest of tasks since the outfits are, well, rather colorful and loud. Today we’ll show you a round up of the Versace outfits:
Gala Gonzalez from AmLul is wearing her magical Versace dress together with a hand full of bananas and an incredibly natural smile. Her facial expression suggests that she shoved one of the bananas up her behind. Sexy.
During Madrid Fashion Week we got to experience Gala ‘live’. We confronted her with a made up rumor of having an affair with Aznar, a buff politician. You can read how she reacted in the Interview.
The ever happy Susie Bubble and the Cherry Blossom Girl were smart enough to show their outfits in black and white. That’s always been an intelligent solution. The guys obviously couldn’t come up with such a thought-through approach:
‘Uber blogger’ BryanBoy poses in a lady-like manner with a Versace purse. Pure testosterone. Posing and outfit would probably cause a collective erection in the lady boy paradise Pattaya.
Prince Pelayo from KateLovesMe is rocking as always. That guy can really wear anything. He would even look stylish in a Miss Piggy costume.
Jakob already described my outfit to the point, I have nothing to add:
“David is wearing a wild mix of colors, leather, lamb fur and green fur. More over-the-top is probably impossible. It’s the Christopher Street Day version of the Clockwork Orange style.”
However, he didn’t exercise any self-criticism, so let’s catch up on that. Read a critical review of his Versace look below:
Jakob is wearing a red and pink ensemble, his pants are tucked into the boots and glorious medals decorate the revers of his jacket.
If head forest ranger Stefan Leitner from ZDF TV show Forsthaus Falkenau ever comes out of the closet, leaves his picture-perfect family to go into hiding in the forest with a 4-liter bottle of poppers to go wild boar hunting he would probably look something like this.
New York, New York!
One can say whatever he wants about the obsolete skinny-silhouette, the always-same leather jackets or the steady recourse to the 1970s and glam-rock: people are buying that shit.
Since Hedi Slimane became the creative director at SAINT LAURENT three years ago, the sales have doubled. Only in 2014 the annual sales climbed up to 27 percent to 707 million dollars – that has been released by the luxury concern KERING, to which Saint Laurent belongs.
For forward-approached and avant-gardistic fashion that is not much of a good sign.
It is going to be interesting to see, if GUCCI is going to proceed after the same principle. The Italian label is by far the biggest brand under the KERING-concern, with 3,5 billion dollars of sales per year – and has a new creative director, Alessandro Michele, since this year.
Our Hero: Pierre Debusschere
We are urgently asking for jackets, pants or sweaters, which carry an uncountable amount of patches.
Since we do not have time, nor the passion for a fabulous DIY-piece, were hereby want to ask all the PR-agencies on the planet to send us designs by their fashion-designers, which have patches on them (you can find the address in our legal info)
As often, Raf Simons was the pioneer of the trend ‘patches’. Or at least the designer, who’s influence can also be found in the collections by other designers. Simons showed designs in his SS 2015 collection, which showed images of personal memories (friends, family, astronauts, sharks etc.). He used the patches as some sort of mood board.
Kit Neale and Astrid Andersen have refined their pants with patches in their current collections (AW 2015). Sandro PARIS did the same with their already mega-hot leather jackets. And the Danish young designer Martin Mitchell made a jeans-vest.
The rule ‘the more the better’ counts of-course also for the patches trend! Go for it!
As usual terrifc setdesign at Henrik Vibskov!
HOOD BY AIR presented their new collection ‘Daddy’ in a cellar-like setting at the Wall Street, the centrum of finance.
The mastermind behind HBA, Shayne Oliver, showed classics from the world of fashion, like button-down shirts, sweaters and polo t-shirts in the typical unisex Hood by Air Silhouette. Therefore it came to an hybrid between polo shirt and dress. Or camel coat and tank top.
The models wore locks in-front of their mouths and tights over their heads, like burglars. The soundtrack of the show, total freedom, was ended drastically, followed by jazz, underlined with the statement of the Empire:
“I wanna show you a faggot really can run this company”.
It becomes obvious how appreciated HBA is also in the art-world, when looking at the guests who attended the show, for example Klaus Biesenbach and Grace Coddington.
It seems that HBA, even after the diss by their once supporter A$AP ROCKY, is still very hip.
